“Budapest, Zagreb, 25 September 2012: The European Roma Rights Centre sent a letter to Croatian authorities today after a group of Romani children were blocked from attending the first day of their pre-school programme because of a protest by non-Romani parents. The incident happened on 17 September 2012 at the primary school of Gornji Hrašćan. More than 50 children were stopped from entering their new preschool facility by approximately 40 adult protesters.
